Sweet Sunny South Update

We are delighted to announce that the Old Time Festival Sweet Sunny South will continue next year, weekend of 7th– 9th September 2018 Full details coming soon!

The festival will be at a new venue – Music at the Buildings – on a farm in West Sussex.

We are grateful for the strong framework built up by Christine Bell and her team in past years and aim to continue in the same spirit.

The line up will include Old Time musicians from US and UK in concert, workshops and, of course, plenty of opportunities for sessions.

There will be a field for camping + toilets, a bar and some catering on site. Plenty of covered space for performances and sessions + a Camp fire.

Feature on Tom Paley – Information Please

The next issue of Old Time News will contain a special feature on Tom Paley. I would like to include some personal reminiscences, so if you have an amusing anecdote please could you email it to editor@foaotmad.org.uk as soon as possible.

The Next Dance Party

We had a super time in July here near Stroud, Gloucestershire, with lots of great musicians and many dancers who had a good long clogging session and lots of fun.

The next dance party is booked for Saturday October 21st at Eastington Village Hall again. GL10 – Not long to go so hope you can make it.

Easy to get to from M5 – take A419 heading for Stroud. At the first roundabout go right – over the canal and up the hill and 1st on the left is Millend Lane with the Village Hall on the corner.
6.30-11pm with a bring and share meal to start with and a catch up, then we get going with the clogging and fabulous music.
Any musicians who can spare an evening do please come along.

Dancers please wear hard soles rather than taps if you can so it doesn’t get too noisy as musicians will be accoustic.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Love Clare
